About Franco Donatoni’s Sextet…

Franco Donatoni was an Italian composer, considered father of New Music.
His works were performed by leading artists, ensembles and conductor, such us Claudio Abbado, Salvatore Accardo, Dino Asciolla, Pierre Boulez, etc.
He reached musical maturity after a long period of exploration, trying to “look beyond” and reaching freedom and brightness into the writing.
His musical life can be divided into three different period:

  • Bartok’s Neoclassicism;
  • serialism, linked to the relationship with M° Bruno Maderna;
  • the negative period;
  • the discover of the invention, linked to the discover of a positive relationship with the art of composition.
